The next part of our DT trophies unit was to paint and make them as realistic as possible, we chose bronze, silver, copper and gold for the base and added some bright colours for additional design features!
Year 1 and 2 had a brilliant PE afternoon together taking part in a range of games/activities such as fruit salad, dodgeball, throwing and catching games and developing our balance and coordination on the trim trail. We then had a surprise treat off Miss Booth and Mrs Wells and had some tasty ice pops.
Year 2 have had an amazing day at Roker beach, playing in the sand, eating a delicious ice cream and running away from the waves! The children have been amazingly well behaved and Miss Booth is so proud of them! What a fantastic day!
On Friday morning Year 2 loved taking part in Fit 4 Fun, it was great to have some of our parents/carers with us for the morning, it was lovely to see them joining in with us and we had an amazing active morning doing different activities with different members of staff!
On Tuesday 9th July year 2 begun their paper mache trophies with Miss Marley and Miss Booth! We had to concentrate and work as a team to hold the bottle and balloon in place, we also needed a lot of patience and peserverance to get the right trophy shape before getting messy with the PVA glue. What a messy but fun job! We can’t wait to paint them next week!
On Tuesday 9th July we had a fantastic PE lesson doing a circuit of activities such as skipping, shuttle runs, hula hooping, balancing and squats, aiming and throwing , star jumps and burpees. The children loved working in different groups and trying the different activities. We had lots of sweaty children by the end, what a great afternoon of PE!
On Tuesday 2nd July year 2 attended an OAA festival, it was absolutely fantastic! The children loved working as a team to locate the different checkpoints around Marine Park to find the materials to build the bears house! It was a brilliant afternoon of team work and problem solving.
On Thursday 20th June, year 2 had a fantastic time in the nature garden for our prayer space session.
On Wednesday the 19th of June we completed our scientific investigation to answer the question ‘what makes plants grow?’ After two weeks of growing our plants we analysed how the plants had grown. We gave some plants water, some sunlight, some water and sunlight and some nothing at all. We were trying to find out what plants need to grow healthily. Year 2 were very surprised that the plant in the cupboard grew, but they were not surprised that it didn’t look healthy since it didn’t receive any sunlight. Some of our plants did not grow at all because they weren’t given water. We made some great conclusions based on our observations. We learnt a lot from our scientific investigation!
